  1. Looking to rehome my P&H Cetus MV. I have had this boat for the past few years but haven't been using it much lately. It a phenomenal boat that is perfect for fast cruising, long distances and camping. The boats build includes the expedition layup which adds extra reinforcements. The boat also comes with deck compass and paddle britches for your spare paddles. The boat is a red deck, light grey hull and white seam, keel strip and deck logo! The boat also has a custom foamed bulk head! The boat is in overall great shape, one small repair was made on the hull and on the bow. A few spider cracks which sis normal in composite boats. If you would like pictures please message or email me at contact @ seakayaknewengland dot com. Price $2800
  2. Still a few spots remaining. This will be a great course if your interested in getting some experience playing in rocks, surf and waves!
  3. We will begin taking appointment for September starting today. However please keep in mind it is getting harder to give accurate estimates for something months away due to the constant price increases we are seeing. We have seen over the past year a nearly 20% price increase in materials. At this time our labor rates are not changing but the material cost is. If you are in need of repairs we are releasing 3 slots for every moth until November.
  4. Depending on the current skeg box it is possible to install a cable skeg. However it could get pretty costly. If you are interested in having it done professionally I have some time in August.
  5. We've had a few requests for a one day coastal play workshop lately, so without further ado we have setup just that four June 26th! This one day course will focus on harnessing the power of the ocean for your enjoyment, whether it be surf, current or rockplay we will focus on boat control, maneuvering, safety/rescues and much more. We are keeping the class size small so do not delay!

  8. Hello NSPN Folks! I currently have some openings for our Coastal Sea Kayak Workshop on June 5th and 6th in Portland, Maine! This workshop is geared toward paddlers both new and seasoned. During this course we will look at rescues, on water navigation, maneuvering around rocks, surfing, all depending on what conditions we have that are best! This is a great opportunity to work on some skills that may have gotten a bit rusty over the winter or even during quarantine. If you are interested please email at [email protected] I will be offering exclusive discounts to paid NSPN members! Hope to see you! Jonathan
  9. Although i'll be up front that my opinion is biased as I look at two P&H boats strapped to the roof of my truck, Mike is correct in that both the cetus and explorer are VERY proven expedition boats. That being said like Andy said the Taran family is has becoming a staple in expedition kayaks. Best to try both. It may be worthwhile to consider how much space you will need in the boat as well for kit. Keeping in mind depending on how much and how you pack it stability may be effected. If you try a boat unloaded and find it unstable that can change in either direction depending on load.
  10. I'd consider the Cetus in lightweight expedition carbon Kevlar infusion. Great balance of weight, strength and speed. Many expeditions have been completed in these boats and they don't miss a beat.
  11. I would recommend the Romany Surf if you are finding the explorer to be too tight of a fit. It has a roomy fit with out feeling like your in a bath tub. The one Prudence has for sale above is in beautiful condition and barely broken in.
